“THOU SHALT HAVE NOOTHER GODS BEFORE ME!”CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE, THE ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, ORYOURSELF AND THE SINS OF YOUR FLESH. ABUNDANCE OF LIFE FOR THE PRESENT AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY ONLY COMES FROM ONE SOURCE– CHRIST LIVING WITHIN YOU. CHRIST ALONE IS YOUR ONLY HOPE OF GLORY!! “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).
WHEN YOU HAVE SURRENDERED YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST AS HIS SERVANT AND HAVE INVITED HIM TO INDWELL YOU, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE FATHER TO BLESS AND KEEP YOU AND THE HOLY SPIRITTO GUIDE AND TRAIN YOU IN THE WAYS OF GOD. WHEN YOU GIVE ALL OF YOURSELF TO CHRIST YOU CLOSE THE DOOR TO SIN. AS MY CHILDREN, I WILL BLESS YOU WITH THE RICHES AND BLESSINGS OF MY KINGDOM. “Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing” 2 Timothy 4:8).
EVERYTHING REQUIRED TO FULFILL MY ETERNAL PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE IS RECEIVED THROUGH LOVING ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART AND KEEPING MY COMMANDMENTS. YOU MUST SEEK ME WITH YOUR WHOLE BEING TO FIND ME.”… you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deuteronomy 4:29).
TO BEAR THE IMAGE OF GOD AND DO MY RIGHTEOUS WORKS, YOUR FLESHLY NATURE MUST BE “BORN AGAIN” IN MY RIGHTEOUSNESS. WHEN YOU GIVE ME YOUR “ALL,” YOU HAVE MADE ROOM IN YOUR LIFE FOR ALL OF ME AND ALL OF MY DIVINE RESOURCES. THE MEASURE YOU GIVE OF YOURSELF IS THE MEASURE YOU RECEIVE OF MY FULNESS. WHEN YOU DO NOT SURRENDER “ALL,” YOUR SOUL’S ALLEGIANCE IS DIVIDED BETWEEN GOD AND YOUR CORRUPTED FLESH. THE FLESH WILL HAVE A TENDENCY TO OPEN THE DOOR TO THE GODS OF THIS WORLD. “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other” (Luke 16:13).
MANY OF MY CHILDREN ARE PASSIVE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WAIT BEFORE ME FOR THE RENEWAL OF THEIR STRENGTH AND POWER. DAILY FILL YOURSELF WITH MY WORD SO THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN BRING MY COMMANDMENTS AND MY WISDOM TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE. IF YOU ALLOW IT, THE DEEDS OF YOUR FLESH WILL DRAIN YOU OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’S WORK IN YOUR LIFE. “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts” (Romans 13:14).
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS YOUR “HELPER”! “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me” (John 15:26). SOME ARE SATISFIED WITH A “TRICKLE” OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHEN THEY COULD HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT FLOODING THEIR BEING WITH MY POWER, WHO THEN ENABLESTHEM TO DO THE WORKS OF GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ONE WHO LEADS YOU TO THE WORKS GOD HAS CHOSEN FOR YOU. THE HOLY SPIRIT BEARS WITNESS TO THE TRUTHS AND REALITY OF GOD. PASSIVENESS AND LUKEWARMNESS OFTEN ARE FROM SEEKING GOD WITH A DIVIDED HEART (SERVING TWO MASTERS). A DIVIDED HEART WILL PRODUCE LEANNESS OF SPIRIT AND FRUITLESSNESS. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways” (James 1:5-8).
RE-DEDICATE YOURSELF FULLY TO ME THAT I MAY GIVE YOU ALL I HAVE PREPARED FOR YOU. ASK ME AND I WILL FILL YOU TO OVERFLOWING WITH MY PRESENCE AND GIVE YOU “RIVERS OF THE LIVING WATERS OF MY SPIRIT!! “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry … until you are endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). ASK, SEEK, AND KNOCK UNTIL THE FULNESS OF MY SPIRIT IS POURED LIKE A MIGHTY RAIN WITHIN YOU. THE MORE YOU POSSESS OF ME AND MY SPIRIT, THE GREATER WORKS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO.
MY CHILDREN, AS SERVANTS OF GOD ARE YOU PROFITABLE TO MY KINGDOM’S WORK? ARE YOU DOING YOUR PART IN THE BATTLE FOR SOULS? DO YOU BRING COMFORT AND HELP TO THOSE IN NEED? EACH ONE OF MY CHILDREN ARE CREATED TO CARRY OUT SPECIFIC WORKS WHICH I DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THEM.THE TRUTH IS THAT YOU CAN HAVE AS MUCH OF MY LIFE AND SPIRIT WITHIN YOU AS YOU DESIRE AND SEEK. YOU WILL FIND MY PRESENCE WORKING WITHIN YOU AND LEADING YOU ON THE PATH I HAVE CHOSEN FOR YOU–WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART. “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
YOU CANNOT EXHAUST THE RESERVOIR OF MY LOVE, POWER, OR GIFTS OF MY SPIRIT!! COME AND JOIN ME IN THE BATTLE FOR THE LOST AND THE PRISONERS OF SATAN. COME AND BASK IN MY PRESENCE, AND ACCOMPLISH YOUR WORKS THROUGH MY WISDOM, FAITH, LOVE, AND THE POWER OF MY SPIRIT!
“OH, THAT MY PEOPLE WOULD LISTEN TO ME, THAT YOU WOULD WALK IN MY WAYS! I WOULD SOON SUBDUE YOUR ENEMIES, AND TURN MY HAND AGAINST YOUR ADVERSARIES. I WOULD FEED YOU ALSO WITH THE FINEST OF WHEAT, AND WITH HONEY FROM THE ROCK I WOULD SATISFY YOU.” (TAKEN FROM Psalms 81:11-16.)
Let us pray: Dearest Father and Lord Jesus Christ, I come today to be filled with Your fulness. I want all of You and none of “self” to interfere with Your wondrous works. I want to fulfill Your plans for my life. From this day forward make my life all about Your works and my obedience to You. I totally dedicate myself to You for Your service. use me, I pray, and may I fulfill all righteousness for Your glory alone. Do Your perfect work within me. Train me and send me forth into Your vineyard. May my all-consuming love be for You and Your message of love and salvation to the world. Forgive my shallowness and fill me to overflowing with Your Spirit. I will pray and seek Your will with my whole heart. Increase my love and devotion to You! I give You my all. Amen.
